Course summary

Prepare for an international career. Achieve fluency in your A-level language and pick up a new one. Deepen your knowledge and understanding of political and cultural issues.

Studying Modern Languages enables you to read, write and speak two foreign languages with proficiency, as well as understand the social, political, economic and cultural evolution of the principal countries in which these languages are spoken.

You’ll gain a deep understanding of contemporary culture in these societies. You will develop highly valuable work-related skills enabling you to conduct research and analysis with confidence. You’ll be able to communicate, debate and interact in your chosen languages at an advanced level.

Year abroad

A year abroad in your third year is an exciting part of the degree. On your year abroad you will spend time in the countries of your chosen languages, in Europe or beyond. You can choose to study at a foreign university, to work as a language assistant in a school abroad, or to undertake a work placement abroad. You also have the flexibility of a combination of any of these options.

Our students have completed a wide variety of interesting placements as part of their year abroad. Study abroad examples include:

  • Sciences Po (Paris)
  • University of Siena (Italy)
  • National University of San Martin (Argentina)

Prepare for your future

The study of foreign languages enables you to pursue many job opportunities both here in the UK and overseas. You will be able to read, write, listen and speak in your chosen languages.

Your potential career paths are wide-ranging. Our graduates have become professional linguists, such as translators and interpreters in the European Parliament, or work as teachers. Most find work in public and private sector institutions, where their communication skills and cultural and social awareness are highly valued.
